Relations between Russia and Turkey are almost back to the level they were prior to the Turkish downing of a Russian warplane over Syria two years ago, the presidents of both countries have said.

Russia and Turkey plan to launch the first reactor at Turkey's Akkuyu nuclear power plant in 2023, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

He was speaking at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, Turkish media reported November 13.

In response to a question on Russian Federation and the United States rejecting a military solution to the conflict in Syria, Erdogan said, "those who do not believe in a military solution in Syria should pull their troops out".

Neither leader went into more specific detail.

In his reported comments, Erdogan said neither Russian Federation, nor the USA would be pulling out of Syria soon. Before his trip to Russia, Erdogan said both Moscow, which backs President Bashar al-Assad, and Washington, which armed Syrian YPG Kurdish forces Ankara sees as allied to separatists fighting in southeastern Turkey, had set up bases. We expect the suppression of all the existing obstacles in the trade relations between both countries, said the Turkish head of State, who reported that their trade reached $1 billion Dollars in the first quarter of the current year. "The world is not stupid, some realities are being told differently and practiced differently", he said.
